We get at Manolo for natural reasons often asked about what we like when it comes to fashion and if we have any personal favorite brands, shops, tailors etc.The advantage of Manolo is that we are not governed in the editorial and therefore can write about things that actually is in our interest. Of course, we must also take out the turns something sometimes for an increased width but overall you read about things that actually reflects our taste and style. Today’s text is no exception. Today I want to tell about my absolute favorite when it comes to webshopar, namely No Man Walks Alone.
This eminent WebStore is operated from New York by Greg Lellouche and his team. They have no regular brick-and-mortar store but have chosen to only invest in e-commerce. The name itself may seem a bit odd coming from the movie Sabrina and a quote in a dialogue between Humphrey Bogart and Audrey Hepburn.
Their idea is to leave the regimentation and conformity that the fashion industry has, and instead opt for the classic, well-made and authentic. A bit of the same thing that we strive for in our selection of Manolo. They put a lot of time to travel around and meet and look for interesting brands and manufacturers. Their focus is on the professionals who are really good at what they are doing; They want to understand the craft and what really is a great product and hand pick the brands and manufacturers that are really good.
As a result, they have a really interesting variety and a range of unique brands. Among other things, they sell a small selection of shoes from Hungarian Lazlo Reed. They have clothing from Eidos Napoli and Japanese Camoshita: Two brands that are very rare to find on the net today. They have shirts from Italian Mazzarelli (which recently was reviewed here at Manolo), handmade umbrellas from Talarico and Francesco Maglia, ties and accessories from Japanese/Italian Tie your tie , and Drake’s London. Knitwear is available from Inis Meain. Two interesting manufacturers of outerwear worth mentioning is Monitalyand Mackintosh defined on http://www.shoppingpicks.net/.

That offer is good may be one thing, there are many others who have a good line, too. What makes this store stand out is several things. They have very good pictures that actually gives you a good feel for the product. Another thing that makes them stand out is that they are woven into specific editorial content on this page. They tells the story about a brand and their manufacturers. They focus on the knowledge and tradition that lies behind the goods themselves. They often publish pictures and interviews when they visit the brands on the site. This means that you get a more better feel for the product and a bit of added value as a customer.
Since they are good at making this page lively and interesting by turning on the visitor.They have a category where their customers can upload photos of themselves wearing the clothes from the store. This is to have the chance to win gift certificates to be used on this page.

They also have something they call Collective Action which is different projects where customers ‘ opinions are valued. This involves, for example, they must produce a shoe. Then presents three different options which visitors on this page may vote on which option they like best. The variant that gets the most votes then put into production and sold on this page. Just at the time of writing, for example in cooperation with Spanish leather specialist La Portegna where a portfolio shall be manufactured and three different color choices are presented.
And to answer the question, no, we get nothing to highlight this page. It’s just very good, and they share our values; Do not float with the current fashion and go for good quality and invest in the substance.
